Headed by the Chairman of Central Water Commission, GS Jha, the team took stock of the situation including water level, inflow and discharge in Mettur Dam, an official, part of the team, said.

The 13-member team, which is in the state, after its two-day trip of Karnataka, held discussions with officials of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry. Tamil Nadu Minister Edapadi Palanisamy submitted a memorandum to the team, even as a group of farmers made a representation for the constitution of the Cauvery Management Board, stating that only it could resolve the vexed issue, the official said.

The team will inspect the Bhavani Sagar dam in nearby Erode district before proceeding to Cauvery delta areas on Monday, the official said. It will inspect the situation in Thanjavur, Thiruvarur and Nagapattinam and submit its report, containing their assessment of both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, to the Supreme Court on 17 October, he added.
